Step 2: Make the Dough

Using your stand mixer, combine the sugar, Earth Balance, and salt together on medium speed with your paddle attachment. Then, add in the egg and lemon zest – followed by the yeast, flour, and milk. Mix all of the ingredients together on low until the dough forms a ball. Switch to your dough hook attachment and mix the dough for about 10 minutes on medium speed. You want the dough ball to be tacky but not sticky. If you need to add a little more water or flour to get the right consistency, that is alright.

Step 3: Let it Rise

Remove the dough ball and place it in a lightly greased bowl to rise. Cover it with a cloth and let it rise for a couple of hours or until it doubles in size.

Step 4: Roll it Out

On a lightly floured counter top, roll out your dough into a large rectangle that is about 2/3 inches thick. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over all of the dough and roll it into the shape of a log. Slice the log into 1 inch thick pieces and sit them on a baking sheet until they double in size, as shown in the lead image of this post.
